2 turtles that hatched out in fall of 01 have not eaten for several weeks and mostly lay about with eyes closed. They had been on a diet of earthworms, mealworms and veg and seemed to do well until recently. I keep them at about 78 deg and lately have left their "grow" light on continuously and raised the humidity. They seem to wake up for a short while when I place them in shallow water, but pretty much seem to "sleep". Today, I noticed one did have some cloudy liquid discharge from the nostrils. Is there any liquid medicine, vitamins, food, ect out there that may help? Should they be seperated from each other? I have had the parents(currently hibernating) for 18 years and hatchlings from a previous season and they have done well so I know some of the basics. New to this site, please advise.
Thanks
